The grounds were beautiful and really kept up nicely. I have been to an all inclusive before so I expected buffet after buffet…after buffet. We tried to book reservations at their onsite restaurants but if you don’t make reservations weeks before your arrival you will not get in. I saw people trying to book reservations when they arrived to the resort and were told that they were too late to book. One lady said “what do you mean too late? I just got here”.
The beach is gorgeous but we were told that there was a strong undertow and to stay out of the water. The vendors are roped off and respect boundaries of the lounge chairs on the beach, but once you leave that designated area you are constantly being harassed by them wanting you to buy their widgets.
The house beer is Dos Equis which I thought was pretty cool. I have been to other all inclusives where the house beer is something you have never heard of and tastes like piss water. Tipping goes a long way. Bring lots of small bills for tipping, you will not be able to find change for large bills. . I tried to get change for a $20 bill all week and was unsuccessful. Cab drivers do not even have change (so they said) so you don’t want to have to give a $20 for a $9 cab ride.
Hotel Staff was very friendly.
